I agree that Chris should chime in. As I recall, the idea was
to add a checkbox for If Deleted on the advanced options page
and add the other match types to the list. However, adding items
with and without If Deleted makes sense too and saves precious
real estate.

I'm surprised by how small the patch is but, hey, it it does
the job... 8-)
